College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 3-7-2014

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Syracuse has lost four of its last five games and don’t forget, it nearly lost the two games preceding this five-game slump. The Orange needed miracle plays in the waning seconds to win at Pitt (on Tyler Ennis's buzzer beater) and at home vs. NC State. Jim Boeheim's team travels to Tallahassee on Sunday to face a Florida State team that's on  the bubble and in dire need of a victory. Will starting power forward Jerami Grant be able to go against the Seminoles? As of late Friday afternoon, Grant remained 'questionable' due to a back injury. He was unable to play in this week's home loss to Georgia Tech. Grant averages 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Kansas will play without freshman center Joel Embiid for a second straight game Saturday at West Virginia. Embiid is resting back and knee injuries in hopes of getting back to 100 percent before next week's Big 12 Tournament. Embiid averages 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game. The Jayhawks covered the spread without their shot blocker in Wednesday's blowout win over Texas Tech.

Texas center Jonathan Holmes (13.2 PPG) rested a sore knee during Wednesday's 66-54 non-covering win Read more

College Basketball Gambling Update: Three tournament spots up for grabs in Big Sky

03.07.2014     08:29 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Update on all of the Big Sky Conference Tournament scenarios for Saturday. As mentioned, seven teams will make it, and four are already in (Weber State, Montana, North Dakota, and Northern Arizona). That leaves three spots available for the five teams currently 10-9 or 9-10. Here's a link to what each team needs to do to get in. Also, we have to make mention of how crazy the conference slate is: 20 games in a low budget league that is spread out over three time zones. Seems a little ridiculous.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Loyola Chicago Ramblers vs. Bradley Braves

Loyola-Chicago vs. Bradley
Recommendation: Bradley


The Missouri Valley Conference Tournament tips off tonight with a pair of first round matchups and this one stands out like a sore thumb. Bradley dominated Loyola-Chicago in both regular season meetings with wins by 17 at home and by 9 on the road. The Ramblers won only four conference games and that is a hard track record to trust in this type of price range. Porter Moser's squad lost six games in a row to close out the regular season while struggling on both ends of the floor: 63.9 ppg and allowed 68.4 ppg. The problem for Loyola most of the season is they heavily rely on the duo of freshman guard Milton Doyle (15.1 ppg, 3.5 apg) and junior Christian Thomas (13.5 ppg, 6.4 rpg). Doyle unfortunately has hit on only one of his last 12 attempts from beyond the arc. Loyola's lack of depth at the forward position has hurt them on the glass where they rank second last in MVC play in rebounding margin (-2.2) and have the worst turnover margin (-2.78) in conference games.  On the flip side, Bradley wasn’t much better but the Braves have arguably the best player on the court in senior guard Walt Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State seeks former mojo vs. Iowa

Iowa at Michigan State -5 O/U 148.5

Losers of six of its last 10, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo is calling for two-a-day practices to make up for all of the lost time due to injuries. Tonight's game against Iowa marks Senior Night for Adreian Payne and Keith Appling. The Spartans were as cheap as -3.5 last night but have since been bet up to -5 at most offshore sportsbooks.


"It sounds brutal, and someone will read it and say, 'What is this idiot doing?' but we've missed 150 (collective) practices," Izzo said. "We've got to make up for it somehow."

College Basketball Betting: Sportsbooks score big on Georgia State "upset"

03.05.2014     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you follow the college basketball betting markets you may have noticed Arkansas State taking a lot of money last night. Georgia State had already clinched the Sun Belt's no. 1 seed and head coach Ron Hunter hinted that he may rest some of his starters the final two games of the regular season. Adding to the potential "no-show" for the Panthers was the difficulty they had getting to the ASU’s arena due to inclement weather. The game started nearly an hour late and before GSU could even blink, Arkansas State jumped out to a 7-0 lead and the Panthers were forced to call a timeout. But Hunter didn't rest all of his starters – he sat only leading scorer RJ Hunter. The rest of the regular rotation saw extended minutes. Arkansas State led by three at half and by as much as 8 in the second half but GSU wouldn't go away and eventually Read more
